The ongoing assault on the Christian churches of Egypt in the aftermath of that nation’s "democratic" revolution continues to demonstrate that the rising leadership has a very different vision for a post-Mubarak nation than that which was presented to the West earlier this year.

NATO has decided to extend its mission in Libya for another 90 days. NATO Secretary-General Anders Rasmussen explains why: “This decision sends a clear message to the Gadhafi regime. We are determined to continue our operation to protect the people of Libya…. NATO, our partners, the whole international community, stand with you. We stand united to make sure that you can shape your own future. And that day is getting closer." British Foreign Secretary William Hague applauded the decision, saying that it represented an “important reaffirmation” of the global commitment to protect Libyan citizens.

Al-Badeel, an Egyptian news service, has reported that an Egyptian Nazi Party will contend in the upcoming elections.  Emad Abdel Sattar, a founding member of the group, summed up its belief as "vesting all powers in a president after choosing him carefully," adding, " … preparations are under way to choose the most competent person to represent the party."  The new party also notes that membership is "increasing at an unexpected rate, and several people came back to ask about the nature of the party and its plans."

In the latest display of the intolerance of Islam, Muslims in Egypt are trying to block the reopening of a Coptic church until the church’s dome and cross have been removed.

Egypt’s deposed president, Hosni Mubarak (left), will be facing trial on charges of corruption and murder. The news is just one more plaguing issue for the former dictator, who has reportedly been suffering from health problems since he was stripped of his power months ago.

According to Egypt’s top prosecutor, Mubarak is responsible for the murder of unarmed protesters during Egypt’s notorious protests that ultimately resulted in the usurpation of Mubarak’s power. During the 18-day revolt, approximately 850 people died, many from police bullets.
